About David
I am a 20 year musician with 11 years teaching experience. Born and raised in New York City, I attended Laguardia high school for music and art and afterward Queens College majoring in music. My main instruments are Clarinet, Drums, and Saxophone, but i also have a strong background in Piano, Trumpet, and Flute. I've taken private music lessons for the past 15 years with world class musicians, among them David Weber and Howard Hirsch. I've performed in every major concert hall in New York City, including Carnegie Hall when i was only 11 years old. I performed alongside many famous musicians, including the late Tito Puente.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching includes all aspects of music; Musical theory, sight singing, as well as Music History. My teaching style allows the child to have fun while they learn their instrument, but I emph
asize a strong practice regiment. Your child will understand that while learning music and an instrument can be fun, there will be some work involved if they want to become great. I usually use either the Alfred or Rubank method books to supplement a curriculum that I tailor make for each individual student. Any question or confusion a student has about anything during the lesson will be explained in detail and dealt with until he/she understands the concept. I've had many students pass all levels of the ABRSM and NYSSMA exams as well as receive academic scholarships for musical excellence.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I require that students buy the books I suggest, but if it is necessary, I can provide photocopies of pages from the books that I own. I also require my students to provide all writing equipment.

*** Specialties ***
all methods and styles. I've played clarinet and saxophone for orchestras, symphonic bands, and jazz bands. I've played drums for jazz, rock, and acoustic sets.

David came on time for our schedule lesson and came in ready to go. He helped my son the corrected way to blow trumpet (which he never learn from school) and broke down lesson so that he is not over wheeled. In just first lesson, I can hear the difference in my son's use of trumpet.

I bring to teaching piano an unrivalled Juilliard education, international performing and recording career, and 18 years of experience teaching students of various levels. In teaching, I see myself as my students' partner dedicated to helping them realize their full potential as budding musicians and performers. I am encouraging, enthusiastic, patient, and flexible in teaching adults and children of all levels. I love finding the right individual approach with each of my students, so that they stay motivated and inspired while growing in their musical understanding and mastery.

I strongly believe that a chief tool enabling progress in all aspects of musicianship is focused listening, and see my role as a teacher to guide students in developing power and sensitivity of aural perception through concrete steps and activities. I'm deliberate in selecting and assigning a repertoire that challenges students with appropriate techniques and allows them to develop as pianists and ...

About Gabrielius
Why settle for piano lessons with a guitarist who also teaches drums and viola? This being NYC, start or continue your piano lessons with an actively performing and recording classical pianist with Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees from the Juilliard School and prizes in top international competitions. As a teacher, I am encouraging, enthusiastic, patient, and flexible in teaching adults and children of all levels. I love finding the right individual approach with each of my students, so that I can effectively help them reach their full potential, whether in their first steps in understanding and making music, or in preparation for performances/auditions. My teaching experience includes a teaching fellowship at Juilliard (2002-2004), private lessons since 2000, extensive master classes in US and abroad, and a university-level v
isiting professorship in my native Lithuania (2011-2016).

My international performing career has led me to appear as soloist with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra (Austria), the Juilliard Orchestra, the New Amsterdam and Adelphi Symphony Orchestras (both in New York), Bilkent Symphony Orchestra (Ankara, Turkey), Wartburg Community Symphony (Iowa), and the Belarus State Symphony Orchestra in Minsk, while in my native Lithuania I appear regularly with all the major orchestras. I have garnered more than a dozen top prizes in competitions on both sides of the Atlantic, such as Beethoven (Vienna, Austria), Hilton Head (United States), and Maria Canals (Spain) International Piano Competitions.

Among the venues where I have enjoyed performing solo are New York’s Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall, Washington, D.C.’s National Gallery, the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, Vienna’s Musikverein, New York’s Symphony Space and Adelphi University, Helsinki’s (Finland) Temppeliaukion kirkko, large halls of National Philharmonic Societies of Belarus and Lithuania, and others. I do love to perform chamber music as well, and have played with numerous outstanding instrumentalists and singers.

I have been greatly interested in the piano music by 20th-Century Lithuanian avant-garde composers Vytautas Bacevičius and Jeronimas Kačinskas, and have shared this interest through several critically acclaimed recordings. The British label ‘Toccata Classics’ has issued two volumes in an ongoing series of Bacevičius' piano music (2012 and 2016). In this project, I had a fortune to collaborate with the five-time Grammy-winning producer Judith Sherman and the five-time Grammy-nominated pianist Ursula Oppens. My recording of Vytautas Bacevičius’ piano concertos Nos. 3 and 4, with the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra and the three-time Grammy-nominated conductor Christopher Lyndon-Gee was released by the largest classical music label 'Naxos' in 2015. Jeronimas Kačinskas' piano works appeared in 2013 on another release by 'Toccata Classics'.

I am looking forward to welcoming you in my studio!

Gabrielius has been teaching piano to my two daughters (5 and 7 years old) for the past 2 years and is an absolutely fantastic teacher! He is wonderful with children and has an amazing ability to figure out how to intrigue them with their lessons. My girls have learned a tremendous amount from him and really love their lessons with him!! He is truly a gifted teacher!

Dr. Gabrielius Alekna is a 5 Star piano teacher. He’s very inspiring. He’s an accomplished concert pianist, recording artist, and holds a Doctor of Music from the Julliard School of Music. Despite all of his accomplishments, he teaches with humility and kindness.

He establishes a high quality standard so you could achieve your best. Either by playing a passage or the whole music piece (to your heart’s delight), he demonstrates the complexity and beauty of the music you are working to learn.

He’s very professional. He genuinely regards every person without condescension and wants you to work toward being your best. I’ve taken lessons with him since 2009 and I’ve played pieces that I will never have been able to play without his patience with me. He is generous with his time, helping me to select a new piano on his day off and always finishing a lesson at its natural conclusion (not because the clock says so.)

Above all he’s a real person that you and I could relate with. And, because of that, I not only regard him as my instructor and mentor, but truly a friend.

I have been studying piano with professor Gabrielius Alekna in Vytautas Magnus University's Music Academy (Lithuania) for three years. Now we continue our lessons online and I am more than pleased to work with him - he is an amazing pianist, caring teacher and one of the most wonderful people that I've ever met. Over this time Gabrielius taught me to hear and understand (classical) music in new and very subtle ways, encouraged me to take challenging music pieces and successfully helped understand, learn and perform them. With Gabrielius' lessons and help I've won national and international piano solo and accompanists competitions, discovered new ways of interpretating music in piano duet and chamber music ensemble. Gabrielius' teaching distinguishes itself by calm and professional approach, which makes the learning process seem rather easy and pleasant than challenging or requiring much effort. The methods used by Gabrielius help achieve excellent quality in one's playing and create the feeling of freedom, which makes the music flow...

About Vincent
I have taught for 18 years, giving both private and group lessons. I am a professional musician, having played in numerous bands, recorded and played shows. I have taugh all ages, and all elvels, and all styles. I play a number of instruments including piano, guitar, bass, violin, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica, in addition to writing and singing. I took private lessons for over 10 years, and also studied music in both high school and college.

*** Lesson Details ***
A student can expect to be treated with respect, and have a lesson tailored around their abilities, interests, and amount of practice time. I make the lessons fun but also informative. I try to get to know my students so that they feel comfortable. I am laid back, but also determined that a student practice well, and learn not only the instrument but music fundamentals a
s well. I try to show students that learning music is a lifelong pursuit that can provide all types of fun and personal fulfillment, in addition to being a potential career and social outlet. After 3-6 months, the student will be playing songs, good ones, not just scales. They will also have learned basics, such as chords and scales, as well as sight reading.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Basement converted into music studio with instruments, and piano and keyboard. Parents can sit in on lessons. Street parking available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide all lesson materials, listening examples, and, on occassion, an instrument. I often use my laptop to play songs and tutorials for students (who don't buy records like we did in the old days.) Generally, students must provide instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I tailor my lessons based on three factors: a student's interests, their ability, and their amount of practice time. I do not use a cookie cutter method of teaching because each student is different. I have studied, formally and informally, rock, pop, blues, jazz and classical. My specialties are rock and blues. On occasion, I will use method books, such as the Schirmer books for piano, but only if the student clearly seems to benefiting from them.

"I took my kids to Miss Sherri because I kept hearing
how wonderful it was. I believe in early exposure to
music because they get so much out of it when they're
really little. And Sherri has a magical quality that
sparks their interest. Jack, 9, Andrew, 7 and my
daughter, Bailey, 6, are now clients of Shirley Grant,
a talent manager for Keisha Knight Pullian, who played
Rudy on 'The Cosby Show,' and Kathleen Herles, the
voice of 'Dora the Explorer.' Jack recently played the
lead in Running Rabbit Theater's production of 'The
Velveteen Rabbit' at the Two River Theater. We love
Miss Sherri!"

I am a professional full time Trombonist. At the same time, teaching has always been a big part of who I am - I love teaching. My music career has taken me around the world and back but more than that it has given me a wonderful tool of self expression, and for that I am forever grateful. Other than the Trombone I do play the Trumpet as well, and I have over 8 years of Piano under my belt. I feel very confident teaching Trumpet up to advanced level, but only beginner level for Piano. I would love to work with some of the younger piano students not only on learning to play the Piano but also about the joy that music can give you!

About Reut
Hello there!

I am a trombonist and teacher, with many years of experience teaching Hebrew as well as music.

As a music teacher I have worked with children starting from private lessons to young children beginning to learn, up to master classes in universities worldwide. I love teaching, and I feel confident teaching trombone and trumpet up to advanced level. For piano, I would prefer to stay with beginners and young ones only :) - but I promise you they will have a wonderful experience (and yes, I do have 8 years of piano studies under my belt).

As a Hebrew teacher, I teach both Hebrew reading and pronunciation and modern conversational Hebrew. My professional experience includes teaching at Golda Och Academy in West Orange, B'nai Abraham in Livingston, Central Synagogue in Manhattan and more, as well as many private lessons. In
the schools I provided classroom instruction, private and group tutoring and adult education as well as private instruction for the faculty.

This is my first time teaching, but I have played piano for 12 years. I have a lot of experience with music. Base on your level, I'll teach you foundation skills such as scales, side-reading, music theory and more. Also we will have fun with pieces in different genre. Let's have a walk in the musical world together!

About Wankun
Hi, I'm Wankun, a college student at CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice. I've many diverse interests, from music to science. I believe that everybody can do both with a balance, and so far, I'm loving it.

Music was always part of my life. I started to play piano when I was 6 and I've advanced it when I was in high school. Still, there are always room for improvement so I'm still practicing to this day. After I moved to the US I start learning other instruments too. In high school I played oboe in wind ensemble and flute in marching band. I always loved hanging out with our school band, just enjoying music in a friendly, cooperative environment. I love music so much, that I listen to songs every day, and I'm planning to do a music minor.

Math and science is another part of my life that I enjoy. As a kid, I was always intereste
d in science documentaries. In school I was the top students in math and science. I learn really quickly so I got ahead of the subjects. I passed the AP text for Chemistry in my sophomore year and the Calculus AB text in my junior year. Currently, I'm studying for Forensic Science at my College.

I don't have a lot of teaching experience, but I believe my ability to share my knowledge with others. I love helping people and I understand that learning can sometimes be overwhelming and boring. So I always love to teach with some twists, we can both enjoy the session and also complete our goal: to advance your knowledge.

Thank you for being interested in me to be your teacher. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

I am new to taking lessons with Wankun. I took lessons about a decade ago but had to curtail them. So, I was nervous about starting up again. She calmed my fears with her very professional and fun way of teaching. She is prompt, patient, and effective. I highly recommend her.

When I first knew Wankun, I was amazed by her passion and talent in music. I know for sure that she is a great pianolist, violinist and a lot others. It is enjoyable and pleasing to hear beautiful rhythm coming out from her fingers. If you have the same passion and want to explore the splendid world of music, you should definitely take her classes!

Teaching piano for over 15 years, all ages and levels welcome. I hold 2 degrees in classical piano performance, giving me the expertise to bring each piece we study up to a high performance level. Our lessons will focus on your unique needs, from the physical (breathing, posture, use of full body...) to the mental (music theory, understanding a composition, sight reading, focus, memory...) emotional (interpretation, confidence...), and more, all leading to a relaxed, natural and inspired technique. My studio is conveniently located in Bushwick near the Dekalb L stop, and Myrtle Wykoff M train, as well as the B38 bus line and many others. I have a beautiful Steinway Grand piano to enjoy ours lessons on and am also ready and willing to travel to you.

About Jacob
I am a professionally driven pianist. Music is my passion and number one priority. I regularly perform with other musicians. Classical music is my specialty and I’ve been through the various paths in this often competitive niche: from auditioning for music schools, regular public performances, accompanying various vocalists and instrumentalists, to preparing for and competing in piano competitions.

My experience within the conservatory atmosphere has given me insight into bringing out one’s own unique ability and approach to music that has been played time and time again by many capable hands. I hold two degrees in Piano Performance (B.A./M.M.). This, combined with many years of teaching and the public recital circuit have given me the perspective and know-how to hone and develop your individual skills at the keyboard.

Together we will
develop a plan to move you forward in your artistic desires and dreams, all while working on pieces close to your heart and introducing new works that will take you to next level. Lessons at my studio will have the benefit of being taught at my Steinway grand piano. I am also happy and able to teach you wherever is most convenient. (If you are in need of a piano I can help you find your match, acoustic or electric!)

I can have a complete beginner able to play a real song by the end of one session, the student does not even realize how much they have learned until the end of the session because of how much fun they are having the whole time.

I'm playing piano for many years that I can say that If you always dream about playing piano but you don't know how you can start or you're looking someone who has a patient and treats kind to your kids, I'm ready to teach. I would like to cause to be loved the piano and share my knowledge.
Especially, I really like to spend time with kids and I have a very understanding way of teaching.

About Aysen Idil
I'm a professional opera singer who is pursuing a master program in Voice in Mannes School of Music right now. As my professional stage experiences, I sang with some big professional opera companies for many years. I performed leading roles in opera productions of New York Lyric Opera Theatre, Ankara State Opera House and Samsun State Opera House and had many concerts with the orchestras. During my active performing life, I've been giving private voice lessons. And in my perspective, If you have professional stage experiences, you can be more equipped for teaching, because sometimes the knowledge might not be enough to teach, it is required to show the students how it should be exactly. I feel full of energy and willing to share the music with you!
